Public transport, cycling and walking priorities in Graz

Elke Kahr, Graz city councilor responsible for transport, plans to swiftly set in motion a range of actions related to public transport, cycling and walking in the city.

Graz’s network of bicycle paths will be expanded, pedestrian footpaths will also see renewed relevance in city planning, city's tram lines will be extended, and significantly reduced ticket prices for students, seniors and annual-ticket buyers will remain. Inspired by the "Bolzano model", Kahr is also considering a temporary car ban near schools in the mornings, a proposal that she said "many concerned parents" would welcome.

New applied practices are yet to be presented and enlighten other cities’ mobility planners as well.
